In this book, we shall be dealing with all the major religions which are found and practiced in India. India is one of the largest secular states in the world, and at present its population is above 960 million now 100 crores of people. India is the one ancient country which has taken tolerance as the first pre-requisite of the religious quest. Be it Islam, Christianity, or any other religion, it has first of all adopted tolerance and only then acquired roots in this land. There is, therefore, something unique, something quite different, something to be very carefully studied and understood about all the Indian religions.
